One of the best-known works of dystopian science-fiction, Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451," was first published on October 19, 1953. While Bradbury predicted things like earbuds, flat-screen TVs and ATMs, it's a relief he was so far off about censorship and anti-intellectualism. Right?

Realme isn't just a leading smartphone brand anymore — it's also number one in tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and ANC earphones (on Flipkart). How did this happen? We hear it from the horse's mouth. Madhav Sheth, Realme VP and CEO for Realme India, Europe and Latin America joins Gadgets 360 reviews editor Jamshed Avari and Orbital host Akhil Arora for a wide-reaching conversation. Sheth talks about why Realme is making so many products, some that are not even connected to its Internet of Things ecosystem, why Realme and other brands are so big on 5G chipsets, and their plans for the new Realme GT series that expanded this week with the GT Neo 2. Along the way, Sheth touches upon Realme's Make in India push that he hopes will move beyond “Assemble in India”, and why Realme doesn't have different local and global strategies. It's about understanding the consumer — someone in Mumbai and Madrid might be more similar than next-door neighbours. Sheth also dicusses deceiving marketing tactics from companies, and advocates for more transparency within offline traders and promoters, who have developed a reputation for recommending brands that provide financial incentives.

I'm Michael Albaum and Today we have with us Dave Homyak, who's going to be talking to us about short term rentals out in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, and what he did to leave his job is under two years with these types of investments. Without any further ado, let's get into it.   Hey, Dave, thanks so much for taking the time to hang out with me today. Really appreciate it.   Dave: Yeah. Thanks for having me.   Michael: Now, my pleasure. For our listeners who don't know you give us a brief background, who you are, Where'd you come from? And how'd you get started in real estate?   Dave: Okay, so basically, I was an engineer, I did engine calibration for a living, I worked for Chrysler, Detroit, diesel, General Motors, bunch of companies like that, and always wanted to do something in real estate, but quite honestly was afraid to do it. So my first investment property I purchased at 53. And the reason I purchased it is because I wanted to be able to get away from my W2 income. And I had had some money saved up I thought I'd pretty good saver. But I was like, what would it take to make me feel like I can walk away and not have any anxiety whatsoever?   And the answer was pretty easy. It's like if I replace my income, then I can walk away and do anything I want. And it's gonna, I will not have to ever worry. And so basically, I set the goal for myself to replace my engineering income in two years with real estate. And I was able to do it in a little bit under a year. And that was due to getting into short term rentals. And I ended up doing it in what I had kind of researched somewhat to the best of my ability at the time. But then what ended up is that an independent third party which is airDNA they ranked it as the best market in 18 best market in 19. It's three of the top six large cities in 20 and I'm waiting for the latest report to come out and I'm sure it's going to be in the top again.   So bottom line is I happen to buy in the one of the best markets and my research indicated that was a good plan. I had no idea that it was going to work out the way it did as quickly as it did though.   Michael: That's incredible. And so we've got to ask Where is that market?   Dave: Said market is in the Smoky Mountains, which is Eastern Tennessee, the three major cities are Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville. So Sevierville is the one that people haven't heard of as much but it's equally profitable and made the air DNA dotco list basically ended up you know, I made the decision looked into apartment syndication knew I could replace my income with that didn't know if I could add it to your timeline, ended up deciding on the Smokies. I looked at the Smokies panhandle of Florida, which is also a good choice. I think Smokies are a little better. Less hurricanes there. I really wanted to go into Panama City. And that got hit about a year later. And I'm like, Oh, I'm so glad I don't have to mess with that stuff.   Michael: Dodged the bullet.   Dave: Yeah, exactly. And then Scottsdale and I ended up going to the Smokies. So started this search and started trying to figure out what I was going to do in March of 18. April is kind of apartment syndication month. first weekend in May, I actually went to the Smokies to look for the first time and ended up seeing six cabins tried to make a decision on three, picked one bought it. So end of May I had that up and running it worked great over the summer, bought another one in August and then bought a third one in November.   And in December I got when the General Motors was offering buyouts and I said, I think it's time to go. And my, my goal was actually to probably stay with General Motors through July. And basically they said if you leave now we'll pay you through July. So I said okay. I can start on, on my leaving and yeah, and all the healthcare and stuff like that that goes with it. So yeah, it worked out really well.   Michael: Fantastic. So what about the Smokies attracted you? They're just out of curiosity.   Dave: So the thing that attracted me was there were people that were making a lot of really good cash on cash return. So one of the things that makes the Smokies a lot different than most other markets and in the panhandle Florida it's fairly similar. But all these things are second homes they're sold turnkey. So if you have to furnish, if you have to buy silverware, if you have to put in beds, TVs, all that stuff, that's just more money that you're gonna have to pay. When the Smokies there's basically two contracts that get written when you buy a house.   One is the purchase agreement for the cabin or the chalet, whatever your choice may be. There's a reason that chalets sometimes work a lot better than cabins and mainly due to supply and demand issues of buyers. But you also write a purchase agreement for the entire contents of the house. So you know, you have here's the cabin price, the chalet price, and for $1, you get the contents. So I literally am closing midweek, and that weekend, I have it rented out. So that's one of the benefits of you don't have a whole lot of downtime. And the second benefit that I didn't even know about at the time or didn't, didn't have nearly as much of a priority on as I do now when I help other investors is the whole regulation.   So in the Smokies, there's not that many hotels, they cannot take nearly as many visitors into the hotels is a built up entertainment, venues, things like that. So there's no way that they can go in like they do in other cities and say we want to ban short term rentals or we want to regulate heavily short term rentals. And, you know, play that regulatory card in make what used to be a really good investment not nearly as good of an investment. And I think you see that in the panhandle of Florida, as well as the Smokies, but I like the Smokies a little better just weather wise stuff like that.   So yeah, I mean, then the other thing is, there's a couple loans that are available down there that I'm not sure if they're available nationwide, I know they're available down there, but there's a 10% down second home loan. So if you're, if your intention is to spend 14 days or more in that property that you're buying the first one down there, you can get a second home loan on it. And that's a fantastic way to get into that market. Because you know, most investment properties you're not going to get for 10% down, right, and certainly not investment properties, you know, that is a primary residence you can put down last but for secondary to put down 10% is pretty crazy.   And then the loan that just, it still makes me smile, it's making me smile right now, and I've talked about it hundreds of times with different investors is there's a 15% down investment loan. And to qualify for the loan, you have to project what the income of the cabin is. And if the cabin throws off enough income, that qualifies you on a debt to income ratio. So for example, if the cabin is gonna throw off $5,000 a month and the payments gonna be 2000. And you're maxed out on debt to income right now. You know, if you're at 40%, guess what, you still qualify because of a cash flow project. It's a cabin with projected cash-flow of 5000 a month, and that cash flows enough to cover the the mortgage payment.   So it's just, it's like one of those things that you're like, I'm pretty I get I've actually checked with my like, once a year, I check with my loan officer, the person that I've used just is this still a thing? Yep, still a thing. And I'm waiting for somebody to say I'm not sure that should be a thing. You know, but it still is now. So even if you're even if your debt to income is fairly high, you can still qualify on the for the investment loan at 15%.   Michael: That is just incredible.   Dave: Yeah, I, it makes me smile, every time I tell somebody, I still can't believe it.   Michael: Yeah, I'm still trying to wrap my head around it, it doesn't seem to make sense. But if it's a thing, it's a thing.   Dave: At least for me, when I've used an investment loan down there, like the property actually made the money it wasn't like you had to stretch your make something up, like I think it's gonna make 10,000 and it makes five or something like that. It's more like if it's going you know, I said an honest five, the payment I think was 16 or 1700 a month and and it did make the five a month that I said it would.   And then where it gets really interesting is once you show them once you show the mortgage company a Schedule E and prove that it made what you said it was going to make, you now qualify for another one the next year. So basically, you can get one of these a year, as long as you wait until after you file your Schedule E and give that to the loan officer. And then if you are married, you know and if you're playing in two person mode two player mode, then you and your wife can both do one a year on that plan. And then the next year you can both do one on that plan.   Michael: Oh my gosh.   Dave: So it's a way to build, build a portfolio very fast and that market is still one of the best markets when it comes to cash on cash returns. So even though there's been a lot of appreciation, the nightly rates have gone up a lot, they had about 2000 cabins burned down in 2016. And before COVID came in, they had I think five developers come in and start to build. And it just the nightly rates have just gone up and up and up. And it's just one of those places that when the when the economy does well, that place does well, the Smokies do well. When the economy does poorly, the Smokies do well, why 60% of the United States is within driving distance of the Smokies.   And smokey, Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most visited National Park. And in 2009 2010, visitorship actually went up when the economy was doing poorly. And when people are like, what how do you Why do you think that happens? You know, I explained, you know, if, if you're afraid about the economy, you're not flying to Florida and taking a one week Disney Cruise, but you're still gonna want to go on vacation. So you're saying you know what, I'm going to drive to the Smokies, I'm going to rent a cabin for three days, we're going to do this thing on the downlow. It's going to be nice, but it's not going to be as extravagant. So I think even when things slow down.   There's, I obviously know a lot of people that invest down there and kind of one of the one of the questions that that we asked each other is what am I missing? It seems like there's really big upside, and not a whole lot of downside. And we haven't come up with anything. Yet that makes it scary. What am I, I very well may be missing something. But I've asked a couple guys and we can't figure it out.   Michael: So I mean, I just I love hearing all of this because as I was sharing with you when we connected before the podcast here, I just 1031ed into a property down there and severe bill. And so I'm very excited now to to get that up and running right here. And this only makes me even more giddy.   Dave: Yeah, yeah, it's pretty, it's pretty cool. I guess the other thing that I've done that I think is interesting, I think your listeners will find interesting is, the other thing I do is as an engineer, I don't sit still very well. So I'm constantly analyzing my properties. And I've owned five, but I keep trading up and 1031ing up. So for example, 2018, I bought a three bedroom, a four bedroom, a five bedroom, middle of 19, I look and I say hey, the five bedrooms doing better than the four, the four bedrooms doing better than the three. And they've all been appreciating, I know, I think I'll sell this three bedroom. So it's underperforming the other two.   So I sold the three bedroom and it had gone up enough that I actually use that 10 1031 money as a down payment on an eight bedroom. So very directionally correct eight bedroom does really well it costs me basically you know the downpayment that I put on the three bedroom and then just this you know the sale on the transfer the money to control an eight bedroom a year later. And there are different people that are doing that. So some are on a never sell anything. And I get I get some people upset on some of the real estate investment forums because they say, What's some of the worst real estate investing advice you've ever heard. And I say buy and hold and they say oh, they just don't like that.   And I'm like, I think I'm doing okay with it. And maybe I should have kept them all and just bought other ones. And then the other thing I ended up just recently doing is I sold the first cabin I bought which was a four bedroom, and I 1031ed did into this ultimate killer, like five bedroom the most incredible views. Just amazing. So that's kind of the other half of the coin is when you're looking at a lot of the when you're when you're looking to do Airbnb anywhere, when you take a look at the market. And if you if you buy the airDNA data, what you're going to see is, especially when you start to well, bigger places are there are less bigger places. So you're going to get outsized demand for the supply of bigger places, so you're able to charge more more bedrooms is better. In the Smokies a view is better a pool in the basement is better.   And what you're also going to see is that if you're running at 95th percentile property, your gross is double what your what a 50th percentile property's gross is going to be. So that isn't if you're running a 95th percentile property, your profits going to be double because you're already making a profit at the 50th percentile, it means your profits going to be you know, times three times four times five, because you've already got your expenses paid at 50th percentile. So anything about 50th percentile You really need, yeah, that's just money in your pocket.   So you really need to, I was, you know, I've made, I've made some mistakes along the way that have cost me someplace between, like a pretty lot of money and just like a lot of money. There are no small mistakes that I did. So, you know, one of the mistakes that I made was, well, if I can put 10% down, this will be I'm going to try not to put much more money and like, if something breaks, I'm going to do it. And looking back on it, there's a couple things that I could have upgraded, that wouldn't have been a big deal. That would have netted me more money in the long run better reviews. You know, when you look at that delta between the 50th percentile in the 95th percentile, it's amazing. So it's, it's worth, it's worth doing that and not kind of being gone on to put in 10%, I'm gonna try never to put another penny in unless something breaks, you know.   Michael: That's worth the upfront investment. So yeah,   Dave: It totally is worth the upfront investment. And even if it's in, let's just say it's, it's not, let's just say you only have the 10% of the closing costs, you know, the other thing is you're making, you should be making a couple 1000 a month anyway. So I mean, in two or three months, you're gonna have 567 $10,000 to spend. So maybe you wait a couple months, and then you put in, you know, the new the new furniture in the living room and refilled the pool table or whatever, get the better hot tub, whatever it is, when you feed that back in, I ended up just selling a place. And it's just doing some, I have some friends that also have properties that are identical, like literally identical to mine like same layout, same view, 50 feet away, and we were talking some numbers. And you know, they did, one guy did a really over the top renovation, his numbers were crazy, and one guy did a milder renovation. And I would I was doing some math of what it would have taken me to put in that and it'd been like under 10 grand. And basically, he was kind of he was out grossing me by about 10 grand, like, Oh, you put in the 10 grand and for the last three years, I could have made 10 grand instead of I save 10 Grand 30 grand Got it.   Michael: Right.   Dave: So it's it, you know, my mind is a is a work in progress for maximizing all these things. Well,   Michael: That's the engineer in you I totally get that as a reformed engineer myself. We get that.   Dave: Okay. Yeah, totally. Dave, I'm curious to get your thoughts because I'm sure that there are people that would argue that there are Smoky Mountain equivalents all over the place, I can invest anywhere in the country and make a good return. What are your thoughts on that? And how do you kind of narrow in on some hot markets?   Dave: I agree that you could probably make the same money. If you dig into 95th percentile stuff, if you dig into all this stuff that makes money. I think it's harder to make money in other places. And what's really interesting is what the how I made more money inn the Smokies, I've made more money, I've made significantly more money in the Smokies with appreciation than I actually did from Airbnb. So if you're making crazy cash on cash, which you still can kind of do, if you know where to look. And your appreciation is outpacing your cash on cash. That's the thing that I think some of the other markets lack. And I've known people that have had places that you know, guy that was in, in place just outside of Denver, and he was killing it in his neighborhood. And I forget if it was him, or his, basically the two of them where they were doing Airbnb in there and it got banned, and all of a sudden, everything's gone. Or you do it in some small place that maybe you're making money. But you know, how do you get that out? And how do you find the investors to come in behind that? Do they know that's a hot market?   So I think a lot of people concentrate and obviously the rental arbitrage people are just doing a just a strictly cash on cash thing. But I think if you look on, if you look at the markets that are being rated by air DNA, I think you're going to have a better overall return. Because other people are just being pointed to that direction, and they have the proof that they need if there's any, if there's any fear of the numbers, the books being cooked, whatever, and you know, some far off market, the middle of Wyoming, whatever I don't know. I mean, I've heard some really interesting numbers of people buying places in the Midwest with pools during COVID, they just they just annihilated because kids want to swim and people have money and if you couldn't go to the public pool and your kid really wanted to swim, guess what you're dropping top dollar, you're gonna beat out the other guy to get that lock in that place with a swim pool, even though it's a less expensive city. So I mean, those guys didn't really well, they're going to do now that the public pools are kind of open, I don't know.   But I think overall, I trust the air DNA data. And I think the cash on cash is available in other places, I'm not sure the appreciation is as much.   Michael: Okay. And so you actually help people find properties out in the Smokies, is that right?   Dave: I do. I do. I that wasn't my goal, my. So my goal straight up was, I was an engineer, I took my bite out, I said, I get to do whatever I want. And I don't like I don't sit still well. So I'm like, I am going to learn to fly airplanes. And my goal is to fly jets. So my goal was to fly for Delta. And so I'm like, I got my private pilot license, I got my instrument pilot license, made it halfway through commercial license, and then kind of like, the whole real estate thing kind of blew up for me.   And in even before I started working, about halfway through the commercial, or excuse me, halfway through the instrument license, I started to get people asking me, Hey, can you kind of help me do that? And can you help me find some of the best performing properties. And I think, because of the engineering background, and because I'm not afraid to do the numbers, and because I'm not afraid to run some spreadsheets and stuff like that, I'm able to better explain to some of the more technical science, math investors, why this makes the most sense. And I'm able to make them feel comfortable enough to invest there.   So I'm getting a lot of clients that have never invested anywhere, I'm getting a lot of 1031 clients, but they see the numbers and it's just like you can't not do it. And that's, it's, it's one of those things that you know, right now, depending on depending on the cash on cash that you're looking for, a lot of a lot of the places don't work. But if you know where to look and and how to make it work. It's a lot easier and, and it's one of those things that it's like, even with, even with MLS access down there. A lot of the agents don't put in the numbers that you need to see. So there's a lot of calling and texting and stuff to dig a lot of this stuff out to make sure that your clients are getting the best stuff. And I think that's what myself and my teammate do better than a lot of other agents is dig out those numbers and make our clients comfortable that they're getting some of the best returns that they can in one of the best markets.   Michael: That's awesome. So Dave talked to us a little bit about what some of these properties that we're talking about cost. And what are some of those cash on cash return numbers and metrics that you that you're seeing.   Dave: Rght. So yeah, when I got started, things were a lot cheaper, it was a lot easier. But the crazy thing is the numbers were slightly better when I got started. But they're still pretty righteous right now. So right now, it's very difficult to find, but I am finding some clients 60% cash on cash returns, I'm finding people between 40% and 50% cash on cash on a fairly regular basis. But yeah, there's, there's just some places that are under priced a little bit. And that's why you're looking just to see what it can do. And there's so many, one of the things I don't like about the Facebook forums, any Facebook forum for Airbnb, is the amount of people that say that nobody should ever take a course.   And I never took a course. And all these people said, are telling these brand new people don't take the course. And I added up what I didn't know and how much it costs me. And it's, it's like 40 or 50,000. Like if I'd taken the course I would have saved myself easily 40 or $50,000. And I'm like, You have no idea how much you can spend on a course and save money. So one of the things that we're seeing down there when we're finding these properties, right is there was somebody that was just bragging that they just filled their last two nights for 2021. And I just thought, boy, you're so underpriced. If you have your entire thing booked up every last day that that just tells me you're leaving a lot of money on the table.   So it's a combination of what you know, kind of what numbers they're generating, currently what their calendar looks like. You know, if they're completely full and they have pretty high gross while you know there's a lot of room, a lot of upside. There's just a bunch of different things like that, that we're using to find properties. And just the straight math is if you find some property compelling enough to pay $100,000 more for it. That's great. Down to roughly $500 a month in principal and interest payment that breaks down. So let's break it down to short term rental terms, you're going to rent it out list, it's going to be under 500. But we'll just call it 500. For the easy math, let's just say you're going to rent it out 20 days a month, now, in the summer, there's no you're renting it out 20 days a month, you're renting it out a lot more than that. But let's just say 20 just to make the math very conservative.   If you rent it out 20 days a month. That means whatever you paid $100,000 more for. If you can charge $25 a day, $25 a day more. For that additional amenity you're breaking even. And if you can charge $26 a day more, you're making money. And guess what have you cost in the Smoky Mountains? About $100,000? Can you rent a cabin for more than $25? A day more? If you get a view? Heck yes. Can you rent to you know, can you rent a five bedroom instead of a three bedroom for $25? More day? Heck, yes.   Yeah, there's so many of these things. So bottom line is if you look, if you want to do just straight math, and let the math guide you to what you need to buy to have the best cash on cash, you're starting to get into more expensive properties. And you know, that basically, kind of up to any price works several million is is fine. If you have the financial ability to do that, things start to make sense, things make a ton of sense. And like 750 $800,000 range, you're still making money in just about any range, you know, 300, 400,000, but you're not making as much and you don't have as much cushion.   So there's a lot of people that are like I want to start small, and I want to and I'm like you, I will be happy to help you find and buy anything you want. But let me explain to you why starting small, in my opinion is more dangerous than starting with something that's making 5-6- 7, 000 a month, right? Because guess what, you can lose 567 1000 a month and you're still breaking even versus you know, if you're making 1000 1500 a month when something goes wrong, you're now making nothing and you may be coming out of pocket. I never want to come out of pocket.   Michael:: This is mind blowing day. This is such good stuff.   Dave: Yeah, cool. So glad you like it.   Michael: As as we wrap up here and let you get out of here. What's a final takeaway that first time short term investors to be thinking about that they want to get into short term rental game? What are some of the hardest lessons that you've learned that you can help people to hear from?   Dave: One of the things I see people do is I want to stay so if there was a post I saw that said I visit Detroit on a regular basis, I want to stay in Detroit. I think I'm going to get a short term rental in Detroit. I say I will pay cash for wherever I want to stay. And if I want to stay in Detroit, I'll pay cash that I've earned in the Smokies are one of the top markets. I'm I'm very big into what's the least I like to earn money. But what I really like to do is earn money with less effort. So if I can have five or 10 places in Detroit, that earned me the same money as one place in the Smokies. I'm going with the Smokies all the time, or the panhandle of Florida or, you know, right now some of the other really hot ones Joshua Tree, Broken Bow. Some other places like that northeast corner of Pennsylvania.   There's a bunch of other markets, but I want I don't want to have I see a lot of guys do like a 40 or 50 person, kind of, or 40 or 50 property, you know, rental arbitrage grinding these things out. And that's just not me. I would say try to get the one that has the best cash flow and go from there.   Michael: Path of least resistance.   Dave: People trust me and people tell me things that they probably wouldn't tell other people. But if you knew, and you would never get any of these people on your podcast if you knew how much money that I know that friends have burned through attempting to do short term rentals poorly like 50,000 a year 75,000 a year just I thought I'd try this house. I thought people would really like it. And they didn't it's like go with the proven method, click the stuff that's working. Don't try to reinvent the wheel. You know, go to where there's 1000s of other people that have already done it.   That's the big mistake that I see people do that cost them lots of money and lots of time in the end and I don't know and just here's my other just general real estate investing advice. There's a friend there, I have a friend of mine who's very sharp. And he's basically he's put together a portfolio. He's mid 20s. And he's put together a portfolio that now basically makes him financially independent, he makes more money from his real estate portfolio than he does from his day job.   And it's like, just ask guys like that, or ask me or ask y'all like, I have this idea. What do you think? And you know, he's very happy to help people. I'm very happy to help people. I'm like, yeah, I'll jump on a call for five minutes. Tell me that you want to invest in, you know, I don't know, some, you know, I'll either tell you how to figure out whether it's a good idea, or I'll tell you why it's a horrible idea just to begin with, you know, avoid places with regulation, avoid places that you might lose money, avoid anything that you can make a couple $100 on, like, why are you doing that? Make 1000s? Like, think big. Like, it's not that much harder to do. It's actually easier. So I guess that would be the other. The other thing I would steer new investors too.   Michael: That's so so good day. Well, it kind of in that vein, how can people reach out to you to get a hold of you if they want to either invest with you in the Smokies or just want to bounce some ideas off of you.   Dave: I'm on Facebook. So Dave, homie, AK on Facebook is a way to reach me, you can message me click on me, whatever. I have a website, SmokyMountaincabinrealty.com and smokey is SMOKY. And if somebody wants to sign up, I have some introductory investment, zoom classes like a 60 minute thing. And I kind of explained what I think is important when finding an investment. I obviously say that the Smokies are a pretty good place to invest because I believe that so those would be the two the two main places to get in touch with me there's SmokyMountainCabinRealty.com, or DaveHomyak.com.   Michael: Alright, Dave, this has been great. One final question that I want to ask you. Because it seems like you are so hyper focused on one particular market. Do you think it's make sense to diversify and invest across multiple different states? What are your thoughts there?   Dave: Excellent question. I am hyper focused on the Smokies because I know those returns are incredible. I'm not necessarily saying somebody should invest in the Smokies only or the panhandle of Florida. I'm saying follow the numbers. I really have an issue with people that have multiple properties in multiple cities. And they're not doing a comparison of how much you know how much money they're earning, and how much time they're putting in. And there are properties that they have that are doing better and there are properties they have that are underperforming and It baffles me why somebody would want to waste their time on an underperforming property instead of cut that one loose and upgrade so I just wish more people would run the numbers.   Michael: This has been so great thank you again for taking the time to hang out with me and I know we'll be chatting soon because we're fellow smokey guys now   Dave: Yeah awesome really appreciate you having me on.   Michael: Take care talk soon.   Alrighty everybody that was our episode a big thank you to Dave super super cool story and I'm just total fanboy because as I mentioned the episode I also recently invested in a smoky so I'm very excited to hear that the outlook is positive. As always, if you liked the episode, leave us a rating or review wherever it is this your podcast and we look forward to seeing the next one. Happy investing

5G has three main goals: speed, ultra-reliable low-latency and internet of things (IoT) enablement. While the benefits and widely known use cases of 5G technology may feel new from a services perspective, 5G has been under development for over 10 years. Many technology advancements have already been made including the development of beamforming and massive MIMO, more advanced radio technology, carrier aggregation and perhaps most importantly: the use of new spectrum bands. As 5G technology becomes more advanced, the allocation of greater amounts of spectrum bands and effective government policies will be necessary to drive further 5G adoption and advancement. To break it down, lower spectrum bands carry less data but carry signals farther. High spectrum bands carry huge swaths of data, but the signal doesn't go as far. Mid-band, on the other hand, is in the sweet spot carrying a fair amount of data a reasonable distance. Service providers use a mix of low, mid, and high spectrum bands and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is working on bringing more of each spectrum bands to the marketplace. Besides the allocation of new spectrum bands, there are several other steps that can be taken to increase the adoption of 5G. The time the FCC takes to clear the frequencies of C-Band has delayed 5G service implementations, along with the time it takes to gain permission to put up a new cell site. Reducing these would be helpful, along with lowering the cost of broadband deployment and the cost of service. The United States struggles with high broadband deployment costs, but programs like the Emergency Broadband Benefit program, Rural Digital Opportunity and 5G Funds are working to close this gap. Companies like Samsung are also uniquely positioned to bring 5G to everyone. For example, Samsung is focused on pushing end-to-end technology deploying all the parts integral to 5G: chips, network equipment, and devices, including smartphones, smart TVs, appliances, and automotive solutions–all with industry-leading security standards. Moreover, Samsung is leveraging experience in the implementation of 2G, 3G, and 4G technologies to take the lead in 5G as well. And all of this can't be done alone, that's why Samsung works with strategic partners across the industry to offer products and solutions that bring 5G networks online – a piece of the greater machine that will bring 5G to life hand-in-hand with the government and other companies and organizations. Widespread adoption of 5G is no small feat, but the payoffs are well worth it. According to a recent report from PWC, 5G is estimated to have a global economic impact of $13.2 trillion and create over 22 million jobs by 2035. Listen now to hear what steps the industry and government are taking to make it happen.

Facebook and its family of apps, including Instagram and WhatsApp, were inaccessible for hours on Monday, taking out a vital communications platform used by billions and showcasing just how dependent the world has become on a company that is under intense scrutiny. Facebook's apps — which include Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger and Oculus — began displaying error messages around 11:40 a.m. Eastern time, users reported. Within minutes, Facebook had disappeared from the internet. The outage lasted over five hours, before some apps slowly flickered back to life, though the company cautioned the services would take time to stabilize. Even so, the impact was far-reaching and severe. Facebook has built itself into a linchpin platform with messaging, livestreaming, virtual reality and many other digital services. In some countries, like Myanmar and India, Facebook is synonymous with the internet. More than 3.5 billion people around the world use Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp to communicate with friends and family, distribute political messaging, and expand their businesses through advertising and outreach. Facebook is also used to sign in to many other apps and services, leading to unexpected domino effects such as people not being able to log into shopping websites or sign into their smart TVs, thermostats and other internet-connected devices. Only one ticket sold for Monday night's Powerball drawing matched all five white balls and the Powerball to win the $699.8 million jackpot, according to the lottery website. It is the fifth largest Powerball jackpot won. The winning ticket was sold at the Albertsons supermarket at 730 Quintana in Morro Bay, California, according to the state's lottery website.

And this isn't a new topic to our show. What is driving the reshoring initiative? COVID. Everything that was coming from overseas halted or decreased. Ships weren't coming through the Panama Canal. Ships weren't being unloaded because the workforce was at home.  When China started rethinking its business environment and they started to incorporate more free-market tendencies, they wanted to become an export economy. They didn't have the technology to export high-end goods so they started on the low end. But now they're catching up. Now, China is focused on export as well as making branded goods for their economy.  People spent their time in quarantine buying low-cost things that are sourced from Amazon—from exercise equipment to kitchen mixers. They're buying computers, TVs, headphones, etc. Many things that are sourced from China.  Will the supply chain get better anytime soon? Lead time and prices are going to increase. Everyone is dealing with it right now. We can't be the link that absorbs all the cost increases. The federal government knew that the influx of money into the economy plus the supply chain issues were going to lead to increased prices. This is going to lead to inflation. Inflation does slow growth. But everyone is saying that interest rates will be holding steady ingo 2022. We think the supply chain issues will continue into 2022 but it's currently a game of wait and see. So what can manufacturers do in the meantime to mitigate the problems that come with supply chain issues? We share a few tips in this episode you don't want to miss.

Roudy NassifCo-founder and Head of R&D at VivaRaysNow more than ever, we are exposing ourselves to artificial light from our phones, devices, TVs and LED lighting. This exposure is taking its toll on our bodies. We are sleeping poorly, waking up tired and sluggish, with a lack of energy and an inability to stay focussed. For most of his life, Roudy Nassif spent nights staying up late, waking up feeling exhausted, unmotivated and unfocused. About 5years ago, Roudy's depression and anguish became unbearable and he left his job to embark on a worldwide journey of learning about himself, nature, quantum physics and biology. Roudy's travels transformed his health and his research into light, health and circadian rhythm disorders have led to the birth of VivaRays.Roudy is a health entrepreneur and the Co-Founder of VivaRays. He has an engineering background and a solid understanding of the quantum physics of light. Roudy has been educating more than 150 functional medicine doctors about maximizing the power of light for patient health and wellbeing.

In this week's episode of the EMS Handoff, Bradley, Eric and David come back together behind the EMS Handoff microphones after a much-needed week of rest to discuss those common “lift assist” calls. Ambulance services and fire departments have regular calls to help citizens  when they fall and are uninjured. Risk mitigation is not only something that should be done when looking at a community, it should be done when helping our patients. Are there aspects that we can advise on that would help those individuals in the future?  - Risk Mitigation - Does five minutes now help later? Potential Recommendations: - If you have a walker or a cane that you are supposed to use, then use it.             - Don't get out of bed or up from a chair suddenly. Sit upright, pause, then push up from the bed or chair, while also standing up with the muscles in your legs.  - Move cords for lights, TVs and other appliances out of walking paths. - Know where your pets are before you move. - Use railings when going up or down steps. - Wear shoes instead of slippers or socks for better traction. - Don't use slippery area or throw rugs in the kitchen, hallways or bathrooms. - Install handholds in the tub and near the toilet. - Don't walk and attempt to use or read your smartphone or tablet at the same time. Especially, if you are walking up or downstairs.

Jacquie Abram had a career in higher education that she was very good at & that she enjoyed. A career that paid her an income, which as a single mother of two girls was the only income, that allowed her to not only provide for her family, but also pay her bills. A career that spanned nearly two decades & by any measure should've been a successful career. But it wasn't. Because throughout her career, Jacquie experienced racism in the workplace, not the kind you see in a lot of movies, books, and TVs shows about racism that occurred decades ago during a time when it was more overt & easily spotted, but the kind of racism that is more covert, hidden, & harder to prove. And so her career was derailed multiple times by multiple employers & she suffered racial trauma that, to this day, she has not fully recovered from. And when the same thing happened to others including both of her girls after they began careers of their own, she pulled herself out of corporate America, wrote HUSH MONEY, a book inspired by true events & co-authored by her girls, & began selling it from the trunk of her car in March 2021 to provide employers with a better way to understand racism, provide employees with a better way to fight it & survive the battle, and provide allies with a better way to see and feel the FULL impact of modern-day racism .

When did you last really think about the amount of electricity your household uses? Are all your appliances A rated? Have you switched to LED lights? And what about the Energy Performance Certificate of your home? Is there room for improvement there? For decades now, Brenda Boardman has been thinking about how to reduce the amount of energy we use in our homes. We have Brenda to thank for the rainbow-coloured energy efficiency labels with their A- G ratings that appear on new fridges, freezers, TVs, dishwashers, and washing machines. As a result of these labels and subsequent legislation, it's no longer possible to buy an energy inefficient fridge or incandescent light bulbs. And there's a strong incentive for manufacturers to make appliances ever more energy efficient. But the introduction of the Energy Performance Certificate for homes has been less successful. So, is achieving carbon net zero in our homes a realistic proposition? Brenda tells Jim Al-Khalili how much she learnt travelling the world, having just missed out on a place at university. And why in her thirties she decided to study part-time for a degree. Working and bringing up children at the same time, it took a while to complete a degree and then a PhD. But, aged 48, Brenda began her academic career working at the Environmental Change Institute in Oxford and has no regrets about the time she spent getting to know who she was an what the world was like.
